He later served as Raytheon’s deputy general manager and director of strategy and business development for unmanned and reconnaissance systems. 

Humphlett earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical and biomedical engineering from Vanderbilt University and a Master of Business Administration degree in entrepreneurship from the University of California Los Angeles’ School of Management.
